ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). AGENCY: We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for certain Model 777–200 and –300 series airplanes. This proposed AD would require removing the electrical system control panel, changing the wiring, installing a new electrical power control panel, and installing new operational software for the electrical load management system and configuration database. This proposed AD results from an in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems review. We are proposing this AD to ensure that the flightcrew is able to turn off electrical power to the IFE system and other non-essential electrical systems through a switch in the flight compartment in the event of smoke or flames. In the event of smoke or flames in the airplane flight deck or passenger cabin, the flightcrew’s inability to turn off electrical power to the IFE system and other non-essential electrical systems could result in the inability to control smoke or flames in the airplane flight deck or passenger cabin during a non-normal or emergency situation. DATES: We must receive comments on this proposed AD by April 22, 2011. ADDRESSES: You may send comments by any of the following methods: • Federal eRulemaking Portal: Go to http://www.regulations.gov.

We will also post a report summarizing each substantive verbal contact we receive about this proposed AD. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 12617 Discussion In response to numerous reports of smoke or flames in the passenger cabin of various models of transport category airplanes, we conducted a comprehensive in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems review. Earlier investigation of the reports had revealed that the source of the smoke and flames was from cabin IFE system components, including electronic seat boxes mounted under passenger seats, IFE wirings, IFE monitors, cabin lighting, wall outlets, and other non-essential cabin electrical systems. The systems review disclosed that in order to minimize the risk of smoke or flames in the passenger cabin, a switch is needed in the flight compartment to enable the flightcrew to turn off electrical power to the IFE system and other non-essential electrical systems. In the event of smoke or flames in the airplane flight deck or passenger cabin, the flightcrew’s inability to turn off power to the IFE system and other nonessential electrical systems, if not corrected, could result in the inability to control smoke or flames in the airplane flight deck or passenger cabin during a non-normal or emergency situation. Relevant Service Information We have reviewed Boeing Service Bulletin 777–24–0074, Revision 1, dated October 5, 2006. This service bulletin describes procedures for removing the electrical power control panel, changing the wiring, and installing a new electrical power control panel having the two new cabin power control switches. Boeing Service Bulletin 777–24–0074, Revision 1, dated October 5, 2006, also specifies prior or concurrent accomplishment of Boeing Service Bulletin 777–24–0070, dated April 4, 2002, which describes procedures for installing new operational software (OPS) for the electrical load management system and new configuration database software. Boeing Service Bulletin 777–24–0074, Revision 1, dated October 5, 2006, refers to Boeing Component Service Bulletin 233W3202–24–04, Revision 1, dated September 25, 2003, as an additional source of guidance for installing the passenger compartment electrical power isolation switches. FAA’s Determination and Requirements of This Proposed AD We are proposing this AD because we evaluated all relevant information and determined the unsafe condition described previously is likely to exist or develop in other products of these same E:\FR\FM\08MRP1.SGM 08MRP1
